Real Housewife's Real Awful Tanning Salon Commercial

August 3, 2010

In a new low for New Jersey, money hungry Teresa Giudice of The Real Housewives of New Jersey continues to perpetuate the stereotype that everyone in New Jersey is both tanned and Italian. Her crime: appearing in a commercial for a local tanning salon that's probably the worst “celebrity” endorsement of all time.

Teresa Giudice is on the verge of bankruptcy. The reality TV star is nearly $11 million in debt and will do anything to ward off her creditors, even if it means embarrassing herself (and her state) in a shoddy, cheaply produced cable commercial for a local tanning salon. Yep, Mrs. Giudice is now the face, body, and skin tone of Sizzle Tans. Her new, shamelessly insincere commercial will broadcast on 10 networks across New Jersey. New Jersey, you have been warned.



Teresa’s relationship with Sizzle Tans is a happy accident. The “real housewife” met the owner of the salon, Rob Hornung, at a signing of her book Skinny Italians which, strangely, was held at a Sizzle salon. According to Hornung, “While she was here, we spray tanned her and she loved it. She wanted to be part of the company.” Hmmm, I bet the paycheck was also persuasive.

While Teresa may not have hit pay dirt with her new gig, she is reigning in her crazed spending and starting to live within her means. That’s a good thing, because she’s going to have to do a lot more commercials like this if she ever hopes to pay back that $11 million debt she and her husband racked up.
